Dialog: "
You know, it's been almost two years since your last check up."

We use the present perfect to talk about something that happened at an unspecific time in the past. We also use it to talk about how many times we've done something, and for quantity of time. Words commonly associated with the present perfect are: just, already, and yet.

  • I've just finished making our itinerary for the trip.
  • Trisha doesn't want to go to the movies because she's already seen the film.
  • Have you read my report yet?
  • The kids haven't washed the dishes yet.
  • Don Quijote is my favorite book! I've read it three times.
  • Japan is a fascinating country. I've been* there five times.
  • It's been two years since I last saw my family.
  • Damian and Julie have lived in Los Angeles for three years.

*NOTE: The difference between "gone to" and "been to"

  • Lisa's on vacation. She's gone to Hawaii. (She's on her way there or is there now)
  • Lisa is back home now. She's been to Hawaii. (She is not in Hawaii anymore. She's at home.)
